Power your body with Green Energy: Welcome to Matcha May!
Monday, 16th April 2018
We’ve created 3 delicious specials to celebrate matcha and help you to power your body with green energy.
When most people think of matcha, they think of a creamy matcha latte or, for the hardcores, a simple matcha tea. This May, we want to show you that matcha isn’t just for hot drinks, it is an incredibly versatile ingredient that can be used in smoothies or shakes and even baking.
The rule that all green food is good for you definitely applies to matcha. It is rich in polyphenol compounds called catechins, which are a type of antioxidant. The levels you find in matcha are considerably higher than in normal green tea. Not only that but matcha contains a dreamy combo of caffeine and L-theanine. This gives you a great energy and mental clarity boost but prevents the typical caffeine crash a couple of hours later.
If you’re new to matcha or already a convert, try our specials this May and celebrate the magic of matcha with us!
